Olwyn has been practicing yoga for over 10 years and during that time has embraced how her style has evolved from Ashtanga to Vinyasa Flow. Now she is enjoying the wonderful complement to all her studies that Anusara brings both personally; to her practice and to her teaching.
Over the years she has had the good fortune to travel and study with some of the world’s best known teachers. After completing her teacher training in 2004 at Yoga Vidya Dham in India she went on to further her training with Shiva Rea, along the way doing classes and workshops with Pattabhi Jois, Baron Baptiste to name a few.
Now a mother to Maia, last minute trips to the US and India have had to end. She couldn’t feel more blessed that so many wonderful teachers are choosing to come to Dublin so her yoga journey can continue.
Olwyn instructs the following:
Level 1-2 classes are for those with some experience of yoga – intermediate and more challenging poses are introduced but variations and modifications will be offered.
Not for beginners.
Open to those who are completely new to Yoga as well as those who are experienced. Must be beyond 14 weeks and can continue up until the birth.

What is Prenatal Yoga?
During pregnancy your body goes through many changes, which creates stress on you mentally and physically. A way to maintain a healthy mind and body is prenatal yoga.
Prenatal yoga focuses on poses for pregnant women, in order to increase strength and flexibility.
It also helps pregnant women to develop proper breathing and relaxation techniques for easier and more comfortable labor.
What Are The Benefits Of Prenatal Yoga?
- Improved sleep
- Reduced stress
- Increased strength, flexibility and endurance
- Decreased lower back pain
- Decreased nausea
- Decreased carpal tunnel syndrome
- Decreased headaches
- Reduced risk of preterm labor
- Lowered risk of intrauterine growth restriction (condition that slows the baby’s growth)
- In addition to the benefits listed, studies have found there is a relationship between prenatal yoga and the reduction of hypertension-related complications, as well as, improvement of fetal outcome.
